Parkdale Queen West Community Health Centre
Have you ever had to use a fire extinguisher? For the lot of us, it’s an item tucked away that collects dust. How do you even use one? Let’s do a quick cobweb shake – remember the P.A.S.S method which stands for: Pull the pin, Aim at the base of the fire, Squeeze the handle, and Sweep from side to side. There you have it…you’re welcome!
For homeless encampments across the city, fires are becoming a growing concern. As of May this year, firefighters have responded to 55 fires and counting. Parkdale Queen West Community Health Centre (PQWCHC) has been helping those living in these spaces, but the encampments are increasing in size, and their funding is limited. PQWCHC has seen some worrisome conditions for fire hazards, and they want to make sure the people living in these areas are safe.
How you can help
We’re pooling funds to give two fire extinguishers at $70 each, totalling $140 bucks to the folks at PQWCHC to allocate where most needed. Let’s alleviate some of the strain put on our firefighters and help our homeless neighbours feel more secure in their surroundings.
